Barritt blow for Poms

Brad Barritt has been ruled out of the second Test against the Springboks with an eye injury.

According to the RFU, the England centre had a successful operation on a lacerated eyeball and will join the squad in Joburg later this week. He will be back in full training at the start of next week and available for the third Test in PE.

England are still waiting for further news on fullback Mike Brown, who injured a thumb while trying to prevent the Boks’ second try at Kings Park.
